I don't know of any that have that long of a shelf life and I can't find one listed. It generally varies by drug, so there may be one, however.

As to Amoxicillin, it has a shelf life of 2 years, from the date of production and your pharmacist has to give it to you with a minimum of one year left on the expiration date, until it starts to lose potency, except when it is a liquid preparation, which have a 7 to 10 day lifespan.

This is an antibiotic, so it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, skin rash and diarrhea.
